How to quickly insert a comment to multiple cells in Excel?
In a worksheet, to insert a comment in a cell is very easy, but when you want to insert the same comment into multiple cells at the same time, how could you do?
In Excel, there is no way to insert multiple comments at the same time. You can, however, copy a comment to multiple cells as follows:
1. Insert your comment in a cell.
2. Select the comment cell and press the Ctrl + C keys to copy it.
3. Then select and right click the range that you would like to batch insert comment, select Paste Special > Paste Special from the right-clicking menu. See screenshot:
4. In the Paste Special dialog box, check the Comments option, and then click the OK button. See screenshot:
Then same comments are inserted to all selected cells immediately.
Note: This method will insert same comments to all selected cells. If you want to insert same comments to visible cells only of a filtered list, please try the below VBA method.
Supposing you have a filtered list as below screenshot shown. And you just want to batch add comments to all visible cells. Please do as follows.
1. Press the Alt + F11 keys together to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window.
2. In the Mocrosoft Visual Basic for Applications window, please click Insert > Module, and input the following code into the Module:
